Master bedrooms in our family-friendly homes are on the main level or separated to one side of your new home for privacy. Additional bedrooms are grouped together and situated on either the second level or away from the master. First floor bathrooms are convenient for residents and guests. Jack and Jill style bathrooms teach kids to share while providing them with their own private and separate space.
Our open-concept layouts in the kitchen, breakfast nook and family room are perfect for eating, cooking, entertaining and keeping a close watch on the kids. Kitchen islands are customizable and can be the focal point of your kitchen. They provide extra seating, storage, counter space and give kids a place to help out or do homework.
Nowadays, floor plans are specifically designed with spreading out in mind. The Prescott II and Grand Prescott II floor plans offer a children’s retreat on the first floor. The location is great for keeping kids close but out of the way. Grad Prescott II also offers a bonus room and an optional media room on the second floor and is ideal for those who require more space away from the main part of the house.
Low maintenance flooring like carpet, tile and wood are great options. Area rugs also provide an alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting. Paints such as eggshell, satin or semi-gloss paints are easy to clean, especially when your kids play Picasso on your lovely walls. Bold colors and patterns camouflage fingerprints, markings and other things.
There’s enough stylish but durable furniture pieces to withstand everything your kids, and sometimes their friends put them through. Look for furniture that doubles as storage, such as an ottoman. Use slipcovers to cover furniture because they’re easy to remove, replace or wash as need. Maximize storage with shelves, hooks, baskets tucked away in corners, TV armoire and shoe cubbies in the foyer.
